What a funny recipe to make! I’ve never made crispy chickpeas before.
Frying the chickpeas in olive oil is a great way to get the crispiest chickpeas. A quick toss in smoked paprika and sugar, and it’s ready to serve.
Super simple to make, these Crispy Spiced Chickpeas are perfect for an appetizer or a snack.
Serves 6 Preparation time : 10 minutes Total time : 22 minutes
- 2 (15-ounce) cans chickpeas
- 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1 cup olive oil
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon peper
- Rinse chickpeas and pat dry thoroughly with paper towels. Combine paprika, sugar, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper in large bowl. Heat olive oil in large Dutch oven over high heat until just smoking.
- Add chickpeas and cook, stirring occasionally, until deep golden brown and crispy, 10-12 minutes. Using slotted spoon, transfer chickpeas to paper towel-lined baking sheet to drain briefly, then toss with paprika-sugar mixture. Serve.
Fried chickpeas can be stored in airtight container for up to 1 day.
